#WOTR19 #Review #Paranormal #Guardians – Vampire’s Mate (Guardians #1) by Valerie Twombly

Vampire's Mate (Guardians, #1)

Vampire Guardian, Marcus Dagotto is sworn to safeguard humanity. With the death of his mate, and a curse that will soon catapult him into bloodlust, he focuses on protecting his king and surviving each day. When the gods interfere, it’s never a good thing and this time they destine him a new mate. He tries to resist the woman fated to be his, but when she ends up in trouble, instinct demands he protect her.

In the darkness, she may be the sliver of light that will save his soul.

After the love of Cassandra Jensen’s life ditches her at the altar, she swears off men forever. But when a sexy stranger visits her nightly dreams and seduction plays a starring role, she reconsiders her current situation. Problem is, he’s a figment of her wild imagination, at least until he steps into her life for real. His world is full of things that go bump in the night, and something evil is coming to claim him. To protect herself means losing him. To save him will mean the ultimate sacrifice.

A single kiss will change her life forever.

Formerly published as Eternal Flame. Revised 2nd edition.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

GAH!!  I love paranormal and this series is so going to make my heart happy!!!  When I was offered the chance to read this I jumped because paranormal is my heart and soul.  Friends!!  I am soooo happy I did.  I loved the world Valerie created.  I loved the characters and I am soooo excited for more from them.  I am not sure who exactly I want to read next!!

Marcus is an empty, lonely immortal.  He lost the mate to an evil enemy and so he is walking the world looking to avenge her.  He is happy to aide his best friend and future king of their race when his sister tells him he has yet another mate.  This is so NOT what our man wants or feels he needs!

Cassie is so loving and hating the erotic dreams she keeps having over this faceless, FANGED man.  When Marcus strolls in to the bar she is at, BOOM she is a hot mess…literally HOT! *wink*  She is losing her mind over how she is attracted to this stranger.

The story of the two of them fighting the draw plus also crashing into each other is such a great read.  They can’t stop fate and it seems fate needs them to be together due to the future war that is erupting.  Their love is also at risk, because the bad guy and his evil accomplice need what they have to conquer the world.

I seriously can’t tell you enough how much I liked this story and how I look forward to the continuing story of trying to stop the war.

#WOTR19 #ThrowbackReview – Rescue Me by Valerie Twombly

Rescue Me

Fighting fires is in Derrick’s blood. Left shaken after the tragic loss of his best friend, the event forces him to realize he can’t afford to care. Love has cost him everything and the pain has him vowing to never suffer such heartache again. When he tries to start over in a small northern town, a beautiful woman steps into his life and pushes every boundary he sets in place.

Being a full-blooded dragon shifter makes Halee an anomaly among her kind. With her eldest brother pressuring her to choose a mate, her loyalties are torn. Turning to a stranger for the night, she hopes to forget the fate she must face. But when the stranger, Derrick, shows up as the new guy at the station, Halee must choose between duty and stability or a man whose kiss unleashes a passion she never realized existed.

Both were looking for escape, but neither expected to find each other. Every heated encounter pulls them closer together. When fire strikes again, it will leave Derrick facing the ultimate choice: break his vow or walk away from Halee forever.

I received this book from the authors for an honest review.

I have looked at so many of this authors books but never seem to have the time in my schedule to read them.  Then when I got an ARC form for this book I jumped because it finally worked out.  Now I admit I saw a fireman on the cover ANNNND didn’t read the blurb so when I got the book and found out it has shifter…yup I was even more excited!!  Then to know the shifters are dragons….stop the press!!!                                                             I am allllllllll in!!

Derrick and Halee are so different but such a great match.  She accepts him for the broken man he is wile he accept her for the “Other” parts of her.

Derrick is the whole “ I am an island” type of guy.  He is a broken man because everyone he loves dies and leaves him.  SO he has decided to just be a player then no one gets hurt especially not him.  Halee is a rare full shifter dragon so her brother pushes her to marry another full-blooded shifter to produce more full-blooded shifters.  She is so over this and just runs away for a night of fun…no strings fun if you get my drift.  The two meet, scratch the itch and go home only to find out they will be working together on the same fire department…..oh snap!

Halee and Derrick have a lot to face and deal with.  She wants more, as does he, but he runs.  She tries to help him over come his demons but when Halee is put in danger he runs…typical man!!  Thankfully Derrick has help from his past to help him see that Halle is the one for him. Once he gets his head outta his butt, getting back is woman is the number one goal.

The story is a fun with the family dynamics of Halee and her siblings. The guys in the fire stations are a riot too.  I would love to see Chance and Hope????  Maybe??  But I really cannot wait for Gaelen to find love!!!
